At first I had thought it would be a romance novel of some sort, but it was the complete opposite of that altogether.
The sotry is compelling, and you feel so clsoe to the main character, you don't want to put the book down until you've read it all!
I hear rumors of a possible movie being made of the book, and released by Sony, but to all those true book readers out there who enjoy a good story and emotional characters. . . pick up this book!
You'll spend the time reading it, and you will understand Sayuri's anguish, her joy and her heart.
A definite MUST READ.
